The royal couples are generally not allowed to do some PDA in public and official engagements as well. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who were always seen indulging into PDA started refraining from it after getting hitched. At the recent event of Queen's Young Leader's Awards held at Buckingham Palace, the royal couple was seen avoiding PDA opportunities.
However, despite all norms and restrictions, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don't miss a chance to be closer to each other. At the recent event of 'Your Commonwealth' Youth Challenge at Marlborough House in London, they both were seen arriving while holding each other's hands.
However, this hand-holding was a brief affair as they both then raised their hand to applaud the performers at the entry.
After that, throughout the event, the couple just stood beside each other and kept their hands to themselves.
Now people would wonder why it was Okay to hold hands at this event but not at Queen's Young Leader Awards. Well, this depends on how official the event is.
Victoria Arbiter said to a leading daily, "There will of course be engagements in the future in which hand holding and affection is perfectly acceptable, but [at the awards ceremony], in the presence of the Queen, the couple showed the dignity and respect such an occasion affords."
Meghan and Prince Harry are one 'too-much in love' kinda couple. It seems like it becomes very difficult for them to refrain from holding hands, but still, they try hard to maintain the discipline.
The two walked down the aisle on May 19 and their wedding was no less than a fairy tale. Meghan was glowing in the bridal dress and couldn't stop smiling. Her mother, who was the only one to attend the wedding from Markle's family was teary-eyed to see her daughter becoming a princess.
